In compiling and publishing the biographies of approximately 1,500 con- 
spicuous living Iowans in this, the initial, edition of WHO'S WHO IN IOWA, 
the editors and publishers, pioneering in the Iowa field, have had to contend 
with obstacles too numerous to enumerate. It is with considerable satisfac- 
tion, therefore, that a start is made on a permanent Iowa reference work 
which shall present concisely, accurately and completely any information 
concerning its notable citizens and which shall be revised from time to time 
in the interest of up-to-dateness. 

WHO'S WHO IN IOWA, it is confidently vouchsafed, is the first biogra- 
phical volume ever published in this state, in which the element and purpose 
of commercialism are not dominant. Knowing that a biographical reference 
work, to be of real value and to become permanent, would have to be based 
on a different principles, the compilers of this work resolved at the outset to 
make actual merit and eligibility the sole gateway to its pages. Meritorious 
achievement therefore was adopted as the only price of admission, and that 
rule has been tenaciously adhered to. Not a line of paid matter appears in 
this volume, and the compilers pride themselves that in every case where an 
attempt was made to purchase one's way into the book, the offer was promptly 

Realizing that the first obstacle to be overcome would be the suspicion 
that WHO'S WHO IN IOWA was but another disguise for the ubiquitous 
commercial county "history," with which every community had been surfeited, 
the publishers sought to inaugurate the work in a favorable light by acquaint- 
ing the leading educators and historians of the state with its true purpose 
and procuring their indorsement. Once these educational authorities were 
convinced that WHO'S WHO IN IOWA was to be a non-commercial, accurate 
and informative reference work, in which merit was the sole consideration in 
the selection of biographical subjects, their enthusiastic indorsement was 
gladly given. The publishers herewith desire to acknowledge their debt of 
gratitude to the following notable Iowans who lent their assistance to the 
compilation of the volume: Johnson Brigham, state librarian; Benjamin F. 
Shambaugh, superintendent of the Iowa Historical Society; Dr. Raymond A. 
Pearson, president of Iowa State College, and Dr. W. A. Jessup, president of 
Iowa State University. 

With painstaking care and dogged persistence, the work of singling out 
the really prominent Iowans and inviting them to contribute biographical 
sketches to WHO'S WHO IN IOWA then was begun. No one not connected 
with this task could have even an approximately correct idea of the enormous 
amount of labor which has been required in the consummation of this under- 

To assemble biographical information about the 2,500 leading citizens of 
Iowa entailed endless research. No one, half dozen or 100 persons in Iowa 
alone could furnish this information. So the plan of selecting one trustworthy 
person in each community and asking him to nominate the local subjects 
worthy of biographing was resorted to. This plan was only partially success- 
ful. In ninety per cent of the cases, the person to whom the request was 
addressed obligingly submitted a list of nominees, but whether his selections 
were ill advised or whether a suspicious hostility toward all biographical 
works existed, the subject so selected in most cases appeared indifferent 
toward the request for sketches. This condition persisted, despite the fact 
that not only were the selected subjects not required to purchase admission 
to the book, but they were not in any way obligated to purchase a book after 
it should have been published. Of course, the compilation of this data entailed 
a considerable expense, and the selected subjects were given an opportunity, 




if they desired, to make a payment on the purchase of a volume, but particular 
stress was laid on the proposition that no payments whatsoever were neces- 
sary, that no one could buy his way into the book, and that regardless of 
whether they purchased a book, their sketches, if submitted, would be 

In hundreds of instances, second and third "follow up" letters were 
required, before this biographical sketch would be forthcoming. To secure 
sketches of others, various methods were employed. In several of the larger 
cities representatives were engaged to procure the data desired. Dr. G. 
Walter Barr, educator and writer, rendered particularly brilliant service in 
the Keokuk field. Workers in other cities also co-operated splendidly to 
enable the biographers to obtain a representative list of subjects. But, in 
spite of the realization that much has been accomplished under the most 
trying of difficulties, the biographers must confess a certain amount of dis- 
appointment that the work does not cover its field and purpose as well as 
it might. 

For the information of those who are not entirely familiar with the precise 
purpose of a non-commercial biographical reference work, WHO'S WHO IN 
IOWA aims to give a brief, crisp personal sketch (devoid of verbiage and 
fulsomeness) of the leading living Iowans, both men and women in all parts 
of the state, telling just the things every intelligent person wants to know 
about those who are most conspicuous in every community and in every walk 
of life. Names of all federal, state, county, and city officials, of course, are 
arbitrarily admitted. No difficulty is encountered in this classification. It is 
with the other class that a fine sense of selection is exercised and will con- 
tinue to be exercised in future editions of this volume. 

As a reference work, WHO'S WHO IN IOWA expects to fill a place of 
usefulness in educational institutions, newspaper offices, public libraries, 
private homes, and commercial offices. In these pages an attempt is made to 
mirror the life of the state in all its phases, the developments of science and 
industry, the development of literature and art and business. The best educa- 
tional authorities recognize the value of high ideals, as exemplified in the 
lives of successful men and women. An attentive reading of the life sketches 
in this volume discloses many extraordinary examples of industry which are 
overlooked in a cursory reading, but which nevertheless are full of suggestion 
for the thoughtful mind. Many deeds of noble and beneficient achievement 
are recorded in these life histories; and here are also chronicled thousands of 
activities which might be emulated with profit, not only by the youth of the 
country, but by all classes of citizenship. 

As an infant must stand before it can toddle and toddle before it can walk, 
WHO'S WHO IN IOWA expects to expand and develop into larger fields of 
usefulness now that it has reached the standing stage. The publishers invite 
suggestions of improvement, new names and notice of any errors which may 
have crept into the initial volume. The next edition will be "bigger and 
better," it is hoped. However, the publishers, in conclusion, desire to express 
satisfaction that a start has been made on a permanent Iowa biographical 

Attention is called to the alphabetical arrangement of the sketches, and 
to the list of names of biographical subjects, who were nominated for inclusion 
in the book, but who neglected to submit their sketches. The publishers trust 
that these persons will be sufficiently impressed by the high standard and 
useful purposes of this, the first edition, that they will contribute their life 
sketches to the next. 

The publishers desire to call attention to the educational section of this 
volume. Iowa has reason to feel proud of its seats of learning, but we believe 
that Iowans do not appreciate the wonderful advantages offered within the 
borders of their own state. For that reason we gladly give space to the 
colleges and universities of Iowa.

Explanatory Note 

HE Publishers call attention to the 

fact that biographical matter will be 
found in two sections of the book. This 
arrangement was necessitated for the 
reason that many biographies were re- 
ceived after the copy had been turned 
over to the printer and part of the book 
published. This arrangement, however, 
permits publication of many sketches 
that otherwise would have been omitted.

The State University of Iowa is an integral part of the public school 
system of the state. As contemplated in its establishment, the work of the 
university is based upon the preparation afforded by the duly accredited high 
schools of the state, whose students are admitted to the undergraduate and 
professional courses upon the presentation of the proper certificates — except 
in the colleges of medicine and law, which require two years of collegiate 
work in preparation. The state, through the university, undertakes to furnish 
instruction in the various branches requisite for an education in the liberal 
arts, law, medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, fine arts, nursing, commerce, engin- 
eering, etc. It also aims to encourage research work in all departments. 

The university embraces the following colleges and schools: The Gradu- 
ate College; the College of Liberal Arts; the College of Law; the College of 
Medicine; the College of Homeopathic Medicine; the College of Dentistry; the 
College of Pharmacy; the College of Applied Science; the College of Educa- 
tion; the School of Commerce; the Schools for Nurses (Medical and Home- 
, opathic Medical) ; the School of Music. 

Integral parts of the institution are also: The summer session, including 
the Iowa Lakeside Laboratory at Lake Okoboji, the School for Library 

The Graduate College unites the university's equipment for advanced 
study and research, its courses beginning where the courses in the other 
colleges end. It offers work leading to the degrees of M. A., M. S., and Ph. D. 

Th College of Liberal Arts is the center around which the university has 
grown. It offers upwards of three hundred liberal and vocational courses irt 
the arts and sciences, these courses leading to the degree of B. A., and B. S., 
the latter only in connection with combined courses in liberal arts and pro- 
fessional studies (see below). 

The College of Law offers a course of three years leading to the degree of 
LL. B. For admission two years of study in a liberal arts college are required. 

The College of Medicine offers a course of four years leading to the degree 
of M. D. The college is recognized by the American Medical Association in 
"Class A." Two years of liberal arts study are required for admission. 

The College of Homeopathic Medicine offers a course of four years, leading 
to the degree of M. D. Its departments of surgery, obstetrics and gynecology, 
ophthalmology, etc., materia medica, and theory and practice of medicine have 
been established by statute. Its other departments (anatomy, physiology, bac- 
teriology, etc.,) are shared with the College of Medicine. 

The College of Dentistry offers a course of four years leading to the degree 
of D. D. S. The college is one of the six leading dental colleges in the country 
which meet the standards of the Dental Faculties Association of American 

The College of Pharmacy offers a two years' course leading to the degree 
of Ph. G., and a three years' course leading to the degree of Ph. C. 

The College of Applied Science offers courses in civil, sanitary, mechan- 
ical, electrical and general engineering, and in chemistry. These are each of 
four years and lead to the degree of B. E. A five-year course is also arranged. 
Advanced degrees are given in C. E., M. E., etc. 

The College of Education unites the various facilities of the university for 
the training of teachers, with special reference to administrative work and the 
higher positions. Its courses lead to the certificate of the College of Education. 

The School of Commerce, established in September, 1914, is organized 
within the College of Liberal Arts and its course leads to the degree of B. S. 
in Commerce. 




The Schools for Nurses are two in number, one conducted in the university 
hospital under the direction of the faculty of the College of Medicine, the other 
in the university of homeopathic hospital under the direction of the faculty of 
the College of Homeopathic Medicine. 

The School of Music is a part of the College of Liberal Arts. Tt offers 
courses in piano, voice, pipe organ, violin, band instruments, and in the history 
and theory of music. 

The Summer Session of two terms, one of six weeks, from June 16 to July 
26, the other four weeks, from July 28 to August 23, is a regular session of 
the university. The session also includes the Iowa Lakeside Laboratory and 
the School for Library Training. 

"Combined courses" in Liberal Arts and professional studies permit the 
attainment in a shortened period of the double degrees of B. S. or B. A. and 
M. D.; B. A. and LL. B.; B. S. and D. D. S.; B. S. and B. E.; and D. D. S. 
and M. D. 


Raymond Allen Pearson, D. of Agr., LL. D., President. 

The college is governed by the state board of education consisting of nine 
members appointed by the governor. The work of the college is conducted 
along the following five major lines: 

Agriculture, Engineering, Home Economics, Industrial Science, Veterinary 

Graduate and Undergraduate Courses. 

In each of these five major lines stated above, collegiate and graduate 
instruction is given, leading to Bachelor's, Master's and Doctor's degrees. 

Graduate instruction is adapted to the needed requirements of candidates 
for different degrees. Undergraduate or collegiate instruction is given in 
four-year, five-year and six-year courses offered in the different divisions of 
the college, and jointly between divisions. Graduate and undergraduate 
courses are fully described in the college catalog, and include courses in 
agricultural education, agricultural engineering, animal husbandry, ceramics, 
chemical engineering, dairying, electrical engineering, farm crops and soils, 
farm management, forestry, home economics, horticulture, industrial science, 
mechanical engineering, mining engineering, structure design, and veterinary 

Non-Collegiate Course. 

These courses are offered especially for young men and women who have 
not completed the requirements for admission to collegiate courses. They in- 
clude two year courses in Agriculture, vocational work in Engineering, Home 
Economics, Rural Structure Design, and one year courses in Dairying, Bee- 
keeping and Livestock Management. 

Summer Session. 

The summer session is divided into two six weeks periods in which some 
courses especially adapted to public school teachers are offered, including 
work in Agriculture, Home Economics, Manual Training, Industrial Science, 
and Vocational Education, work for rural and grade teachers. Special at- 
tention is given to collegiate and graduate courses. 

Winter Short Courses- 

These are given at different times on different subjects with one special 
week known as Short Course or Convention Week. 

Agricultural Experiment Station. 

Charles Franklin Curtiss, B. Sc., D. S., Director, Ames. 

The Iowa Agricultural Experiment Station was established in accordance 
with an act of congress, approved March 2, 1887, for the purpose of aiding 
"In acquiring and diffusing among the people of the United States useful and 



practical information on subjects connected with agriculture, and to promote 
scientific investigation and experiments respecting the principles and applica- 
tion of agricultural science." 

The work of the Agricultural Experiment Station now includes the fol- 
lowing lines of investigation: Farm crops and soils, farm management, animal 
husbandry, horticulture and forestry, agricultural engineering, botany, dairy- 
ing, entomology, chemistry, bacteriology, rural sociology, and agricultural 
economics. The results of investigations and experiments along these lines 
are published in bulletins and circulars which are distributed free to all resi- 
dents of the state who apply for them. 

The work in the Agricultural Experiment Station is of direct service to 
the agricultural interests in the state and nation. The results of experiment 
station investigations serve as the basis for agricultural instruction from the 
standpoint of both the college and extension work. It is now universally 
recognized that little progress can be made by agricultural colleges, either in 
teaching their students or in carrying information directly to farmers, until 
definite data has been secured concerning the scientific and practical prob- 
lems which constitute the basis of our present day agriculture. 

Engineering Experiment Station. 

Including Good Roads Experimentation. 

Anson Marston, C. E., Director, Ames. 

The Engineering Experiment Station was established at the Iowa Stato 
College by the legislature .of Iowa in 1904 to afford a service, through scien- 
tific investigations, evolution of new devices and methods, educational in- 
formation on technical subjects and tests and analysis of materials; for the 
manufacturing and other engineering population and industries of Iowa; for 
the agricultural industries of the state in the solution of their engineering 
problems; for the urban and rural population of the' state in the solution of the 
engineering problems of urban and rural life. 

From the first the station has carried on original investigations along 
lines of vital interest to the people of Iowa, including drainage, sewerage and 
sewerage disposal, water supply, roads and road traffic, pavements, bridges, 
clay products, concrete materials and other materials of construction, lighting, 
steam and electric power, engineering economics and others. The results 
have been published in more than fifty bulletins for free distribution. Arty 
of these bulletins not out of print will be sent free upon request addressed 
to Director Anson Marston, Engineering Experiment Station, Ames, Iowa. 

The station has given special attention to water supply, sewerage and 
lighting for farm homes. 

For many years the station has made tests and analysis of construction 
and other materials for state departments, counties, townships, cities, fac- 
tories, corporations and individual citizens of Iowa. The charges for such 
tests are at least equal to those charged by responsible commercial testing 
laboratories, as the station will not assume the role of competitor with com- 
mercial laboratories. The station stands ready to make check tests or to act 
as final authority oh questions of this nature, but would prefer that all 
routine tests be made by outside laboratories. The amount and character of 
the testing work is so restricted as not to interfere seriously with the in- 
vestigational work. 

Veterinary Investigations. 

C. H. Stange, Dean. 

This work was organized under provisions made by the thirty-fifth gen- 
eral assembly. Considerable information concerning hemorrhagic septicemia 
in cattle has been secured, a serum produced and a number of herds treated. 
Other diseases have been studied and much time has been given to hog 
cholera and complications of this disease. 



Extension Work. 

R. A. Pearson, President. 

The extension work of the Iowa State College of Agriculture and Mech- 
anic Arts is divided into two branches — agriculture extension and engineer- 
ing extension. 

Agricultural Extension. 

R. K. Bliss, Director. 

The agricultural extension work was established permanently by enact- 
ment of the thirty-first general assembly of Iowa. This act provided for giv- 
ing lectures and demonstrations on the growing of crops and fruits, on stock 
raising, dairying, land drainage and kindred subjects, including domestic 
science. Specific mention was made in this act on instruction in corn and 
stock judging at the agricultural fairs, institutes and clubs and aid in con- 
ducting short courses of instruction at suitable places throughout the state. 

Engineering Extension. 

D. C. Faber, Acting Director. 

The thirty-fifth general assembly of Iowa provided an appropriation for 
the establishment of engineering extension and trade school work. Two-year 
courses in trades and industry are conducted at the college for young men 
wishing to prepare themselves for expert positions in industrial lines. Short 
courses of instruction and technical institutes are conducted in industrial cen- 
ters. Technical information is supplied municipalities and civic organizations. 
Bulletins of information are issued from time to tme. 

Hog Cholera Serum Plant. 

C. H. Stan&e, Drector. 

This work was started under an appropriation of $35,000 made by the 
thirty-fifth general assembly for the production of biological products, espec- 
ially hog cholera serum. The plant is self-supporting. Permanent buildings 
have been erected. Up to December 31, 1918, 25,730,357 cubic centimeters 
of serum had been produced. This serum was used in treating 10,091 herds. 

State Apiarist. 

Appointed by the State Board of Education. Term at pleasure of Board. 
Appropriation $1,500 annually. 

F. Erick Millen, of Ames, Story County. 

It is the duty of the apairist to give lectures and demonstrations in the 
state of Iowa on the production of honey, the care of the apiary, the market- 
ing of honey, and upon other kindred subjects relative to the care of bees 
and the profitable production of honey. Also, upon request the apiarist shall 
examine the bees in a locality suspected of being affected with any of the 
contagious diseases common to bees. It is the duty of the apiarist to furnish 
the owner of the bees, without cost, written instructions in regard to the 
nature of the disease and the best methods of treating it. It is a misdemeanor 
of anyone to fail to properly take care of a colony of diseased bees or in other 
ways cause the spread of contagious diseases among bees. 


President — Homer H. Seerley, M. A., LL. D. 

This institution was founded in 1876 as a school tor the instruction and 
training of teachers for the public schools. It used the title of Iowa State 
Normal School from 1876 to 1909 and since that time the title Iowa State 
Teachers College, authorized by an act of the general assembly. It is a col- 
lege in its standards as to graduating with a degree from its courses, though 
it admits and instructs teachers and grants diplomas of special varieties for 
all classes of teachers, rural and elementary, needed by the public schools. 
Fo^ admission to college courses, graduation from an accredited high school 
is required. For admission to sub-collegiate courses and rural teachers work 
an elementary education is required. 



The institution is organized to give teacher education and training and 
does not undertake any other kind of educational work. Its courses are 
to give efficiency and capability to the students as workers in public schools. 
Its field of service grants preparation to high school teachers, to elementary 
and primary teachers, and to all kinds of special teachers now demanded by 
the public schools of the state. Its plan is that of a vocational school and 
everything that is done has a bearing upon the training of young men and 
women for service in the system of public education maintained in the 
state. Its degree graduates are admitted without conditions to the graduate 
schools of the universities and its alumni hold important positions in public 
service in every state where they are employed. Its diplomas are Bachelor 
of Arts in Education, Special Teacher Diplomas such as Primary, Junior 
College, Kindergarten, Art, Public School Music, Manual Arts, Home Econom- 
ics, Physical Education, Commercial, Rural Education, Rural Teacher and 
Normal Course. In addition music teachers are granted diplomas for piano, 
organ, violin and voice. 


The income for the support of this institution, and to meet the ordinary 
and current expenses, including the compensation of officials, teachers and 
other employees, the purchase of food, supplies, clothing, furniture and 
furnishings, books, maps, apparatus, and other expenses, is $24,00 a month 
for nine months of each year for each resident pupil actually supported by 
the school. Whenever the average number of pupils in any month is less 
than 275, the school is entitled to draw $6,600.00 from the state treasury. 
Therefore, the regular annual appropriation for the support of this institu- 
tion is not less than $59,400.00. 

Every resident not less than five or more than twenty-one years of age 
too deaf to be educated in the common schools, and. every such person who 
is over twenty-one and under thirty-live years of age who has the consent of 
the board of control, is entitled to receive an education in the institution 
at the expense of the state. Non-residents similarly situated may be entitled 
to an education therein upon the payment of sixty-six dollars quarterly in 

The session of the school begins the first day of October and continues 
until the last day of June of each year. Pupils should come promptly at the 
beginning and remain until the end of the session. 


Superintendent — F. E. Palmer. 

The aim and purpose of this institution is purely educational. The liter- 
ary work covers a period of twelve years and is outlined similar to the work 
done in the public school, having a fully accredited high school. The depart- 
ment of music is supplied with a number of pianos, one pipe organ, and a 
number of stringed instruments. All students who have talent in music are 
given a thorough course in this department. All students are required to 
do work in the industrial department. The girls are taught knitting, crochet- 
ing, fancy-work, hand and machine sewing, and domestic science. The boys 
are taught netting, weaving, broom making, cane seating, manual training 
and piano tuning. These advantages are free to all blind children of school 
age and those who have vision so defective as lo prevent thvm from attend- 
ing the public schools, providing they are mentally normal. The school year 
begins the first Wednesday in September and closes the last week in May.
